Beginner´s Guide To Getting Fit

                 Beginner´s Guide To Getting Fit

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog, today's post I’m starting a new section on the blog, as you can see from the title it’s a fitness section and this very first post it’s a beginner’s guide to getting fit.
Now it’s not going to be another post where I tell you 5 different routines to do with push-ups and sit-ups and m not telling you what do you have to eat. This post it's focused on some advice of what you can do if your thinking about making this huge decision on having a healthier life.

If you are thinking about changing your lifestyle to make it healthier, start eating more vegetable and fruits and less fast-food, start doing exercise again or for the first time in your life the very first thing you need to do.

Decide a goal: you need to decide what is it that you want to achieve by making this change in your life do you want to lose weight? Do you want to gain muscle? Do you want to improve your physical condition?  Or maybe you only want to have a healthy life.
You need to ask yourself this question and decide your specific the goal, it can be more than one and you can make a list and achieve one goal at a time.

Once you have decided on your goal or goals, the second thing you need to decide is

Where and how you want to do it: do you prefer to do in it at home spending 30 minutes each day in the morning before all your activities maybe go outside to a park in your back yard, maybe you are a gym person or maybe you want to enroll yourself in a specific activity like yoga or CrossFit or Pilates. When you decided this, you must make sure you feel comfortable when your exercising otherwise, you will end up dropping out and make sure it fits your needs don’t feel pressure because your friends go to the gym and you don’t.  

Take progress photos: a great way to motivate your self is by taking progress photos, these are pictures you will take of your body to see how it’s changing through all the processes. One thing you need to have in mind is that the progress its different in every person and sometimes we may don’t see a different each month but that doesn’t mean you don’t feel the difference.

You may look at your body and say it looks the same as the last month but you don’t feel the same as last month you probably feel with more energy, maybe your articulations don’t hurt anymore, you are in a better mood you can do more push-ups or more squats, you no longer get sore.
I think it’s better if you take a picture of your progress every two months to see good progress. But also, don’t stress out on it. Just keep going as long as you feel good.

This next tip can be a little silly for some but I do believe it can be motivational

Get nice workout clothes: you don’t need expensive clothes or shoes to work out, but wearing nice clothes that you like in fun colors does motivate you to get up and work out.
The next advice is one of the most important ones, whether you are not ready to commit to a specific routine every day or you already found a routine you want to do, you have to prepare your body for the workout. 

Change your eating habits: a healthy life is just not about working out, it’s also about eating clean;
more fruits and vegetables drink lots of water, that’s the only the way you will see changes and not just on your body but also changes on how you feel every day.

This can be the hardest change you make; don’t stress out if one day you ate a slice of pizza or drank a cup of soda. Go one step at a time, make small changes try incorporating more vegetables on your meals, try eating fast food just once a week, try eating fruit instead of chips or chocolate.  Don’t cut it off all at once it can be really hard, go small, one step at a time.

These are all the tips I have for you if you have made the decision on start getting fit, I'm not an expert I´m only sharing with you what I have done myself and told my students to do and they have worked I have seen positive results and I just wanted to share them with all of you.
